Soggy surface sinks Braintree Reserves hopes of Thurlow Nunn League action
A waterlogged Amlin Stadium pitch sunk Braintree Town Reserves' hopes of playing Haverhill Borough in Thurlow Nunn League division one.
The game had been due to be played at Braintree's home ground on Wednesday evening but heavy rain during the afternoon left the pitch in an unplayable state.
A referee made a pitch inspection several hours before kick-off and further subsequent rain meant there was no chance of getting the fixture played.
Braintree's first team are due to have a home game against Chester in the Skrill Premier on Saturday.
The call-off was reminiscent of last season when wet weather left the Amlin Stadium playing surface waterlogged for long periods.
That caused a number of first team and reserve team postponements and led the club to spend money on improving the drainage on the pitch last summer.
